Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Paper presented at the BGA 3rd International Conference in Geoenvironmental Engineering. This chapter discusses a programme of groundwater monitoring at an industrial site in west London. Redevelopment of the site revealed high levels of pollution. Limited excavation works and groundwater extraction were carried out but groundwater sampling continued to show high levels of pollution. A ground water monitorring programme was used to investigate the potential for co-degradation of petroleum fuel and trichloroethylene.
